Liverpool’s finest The Wombats are back at it again. Following the first single since 2015 ‘Lemon to a Knife Fight’, they’re back again with ‘Turn’. There’s something comforting about The Wombats, they bring about a nostalgia for my early teenage years when things didn’t get better than Friday nights spent dancing around to The Modern Glitch.
‘Turn’ is a fresh set of eyes on the indie anthems The Wombats have brought about before. Described by the band as ‘beautiful mistake’ the song is the most synth driven cut from new album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life. The song tells the all too well-known tale of a dysfunctional relationship and the times that front man Matthew Murphy is yet to miss when the relationship will meet its inevitable demise.
While the song feels fresh and new, there’s nothing new for The Wombats here, but if it’s broke don’t try and fix it. There’s more obvious elements Glitterbug than anything else but with the band explaining that they’ve gone for a more ‘organic’ sound with more instruments we could hear something more like their debut in the coming weeks.
Give ‘Turn’ a spin here and look out for the band’s fourth studio album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life when it hits the shop on February 2nd.
